It's the talk of the town -- at least, of downtown Fargo.
That's after the news that the Coen brothers have inked a deal to develop a TV series based on their film, "Fargo."
Downtowners had mixed reactions to the news.
They say they're hoping the series doesn't poke as much fun as the movie at the regional accents.
And, they say, the movie wasn't even filmed in Fargo.
People who were most excited about the new series, like downtowner Jacque Sawyer, tended to not originally be from Fargo themselves.
"I'm intrigued. I want to see it. Yes, it's sad that they didn't get to film any of it in Fargo, but they really had certain aspects of it down, like the voices and stuff. I liked it," she said, outside Spicy Pie restaurant Tuesday. She admits she's not a Fargoan by birth, but, "I've been here eleven years. And my family's from here."
"Is it going to be as bad as the first one was?" asked Cady Goke, on a stroll down Broadway. "I liked it, but it poked fun at the whole area," she said.
A spokesperson for the FX network says he can't give us any details about the cast, the characters or where it'll be shot. The deal is so new, he says, they don't even have a script yet.
